I learned something new today. Just a short 30 minute drive will allow you to spend time flying a kite with other kite savy fliers during the Lake Harriet Kite Festival. They are in their 10th year and for some reason I am just now finding out about this fun winter activity. Check out the photos in the attached link.
Kite flying is something I have never been that good at. When I try flying kites with the kids it should instead be called running! I spend most of my time retrieving the kite and running about trying to get it air bound. I end of feeling silly and exhausted. About the time I get one up and hand it to the little waiting hands, it comes quickly crashing to the ground. When I have two kids who are patiently waiting for me to get their kite flying I just can’t seem to get it to all work out.
Are there tricks to this sport? I have read up on wind and I am of course cautious of the safety concerns like trees, wires, power lines etc, but what is the science behind the flying. I guess I had better plan to make it to next years festival so that I can learn from the experts!
Just one more fun Minnesota winter activity that you can do as a family. Its no wonder we all like living here in Minnesota!
